MANILA, Philippines – Tropical Depression (TD) Carina is forecast to weaken into a low-pressure area (LPA) on Tuesday (July 14) afternoon or Wednesday morning (July 15). 

According to the latest update from the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the weather system is seen to move towards the north direction while heading towards the Bashi Channel and the southern portion of Taiwan. 

As of 11:00AM on Tuesday, TD Carina was located at 155km west of Basco, Batanes. 

It is moving toward the northwest direction at 25 km/h packed with maximum sustained winds of 45 km/h and gustiness of 55 km/h. 

PAGASA said tropical Cyclone Wind Signal No. 1 (TWCS) remains over Batanes which means isolated light to moderate rains with at times heavy rain showers will prevail today until tomorrow as well as in nearby areas, the Babuyan Islands and Ilocos Norte. 

Metro Manila and the rest of the country, meanwhile, will experience partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers today and tomorrow due to localized thunderstorms.

Rains across PH due to southwest monsoon, ITCZ — PAGASA

Marje Pelayo   •   June 9, 2021

MANILA, Philippines — Since it is the onset of the rainy season, wet days are expected across the country.

According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the southwest monsoon is now affecting Luzon and Western Visayas.

Specifically, Metro Manila and the rest of Luzon as well as Western Visayas will continue to experience cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms which may possibly cause flash floods or landslides due to moderate or at times heavy rains.

Meanwhile, the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) is affecting the rest of the country bringing partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms. .

These conditions may cause flash floods or landslides due to severe thunderstorms in areas susceptible to these hazards.

PAGASA advises the public to closely monitor weather updates through the agency’s official website and social media accounts.

Monsoon rains affecting Luzon, LPA brewing east of Borongan City, E. Samar – PAGASA

Marje Pelayo   •   June 8, 2021

MANILA, Philippines – Expect rains in the coming days as the onset of rainy season is here, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) said.

On Tuesday (June 8), the agency spotted a brewing low pressure area (LPA) in the east-southeastern side of Borongan City, Eastern Samar.

It is embedded along the intertropical convergence zone (ITCZ) which is currently affecting Visayas and Mindanao.

Specifically, the ITCZ is bringing cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms over Eastern Visayas and Caraga regions.

Meanwhile, the areas of Zambales, Palawan, and Mindoro provinces are now experiencing cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms as well due to the effects of the Southwest Monsoon.

The combined effects of both weather systems – ITCZ and monsoon rains – are what’s causing partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rain showers or thunderstorms over Metro Manila and the rest of the country.

MANILA, Philippines — The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA) on Friday officially declared the start of the rainy season in the Philippines.

PAGASA said the passage of Tropical Storm Dante and the occurrence of widespread rainfall monitored in the last five days for areas under Type I climate confirm the onset of the rainy season.

“The probability of near to above normal rainfall conditions is high in the next two months (June-July),” the state weather bureau said.

“However, breaks in rainfall events (also known as monsoon breaks), which can last for several days or weeks, may still occur,” it added.

The agency said intermittent rains, associated with the Southwest monsoon will continue to affect Metro Manila and the western section of the country.

PAGASA urged the public and all concerned agencies to take precautionary measures against the impacts of the rainy season.
